Domain Specific Architecture (DSA) for Cryptography: Implementation, Verification, and Benchmarking
The emergence of new fields of computing, with reaching the physical limits of technology has made it impossible to improve existing computing systems with the relying on the technology and node shrink. At the same time, the cost of developing chips in the new sub 40-nanometer node made it hard to justify such efforts on a small volume scale. As a result, implementing Domain Specific Architecture (DSA) is becoming a key in making the new generation of computers, in this project we look at the implementation, benchmarking, and verification of such architecture. Implementation of a SHA-256 hardware in a INTEL ALTERA Cyclone FPGA is examined using Software Hardware verification for the implementation, and we perform analysis on this FPGA implementation.
